Saisons are Wallonian rustic farmhouse ales, traditionally made by farmers for their saisonnier or seasonal farm labourers. Traditionally thirst quenching, we offer a more modern style, higher in strength and flavour. Saison Anise is a complex malty amber-coloured ale, balanced with noble hops, fresh lemon and orange zest, and spiced with black pepper and star anise. We use the classic French farmhouse yeast for fruity spicy flavour and a very dry finish. 

Food pairing: Sharp cheese, washed rind cheese, shellfish esp. scallops, Thai food, fennel dishes, duck.

Red, amber bronze with a creamy head, gentle carbonation. Delicate spicy gingerbread aromas. Fruity, almost blackcurrant flavours. Candied orange, aniseed & black jellybeans, peppery saison phenolics, sweet spices, and a tart long dry finish round it all out.
